Another painting for the game Novus Aeterno. This image was used as a guide to show the look and general feel of the big gas and dust clouds that are to be added into the games space to make space less empty and boring. There is a huge fleet of ships breaking orbit from a planet that can just be seen behind the big dust cloud. This is the first image I did that showed off all the ships the human race has, minus a big ass one but more on that later. The ships are paint-overs of 3D models created by our very talented 3D ship modeler :iconpukey82: some adjustments were made but the basic shape was kept for accuracy.

(Updated: I had some revisions I wanted to make to the original and felt they were too big to just place over the old submission so I have resubmitted it, sorry for any inconvenience :ahoy: )

As the title suggests this is a pretty crazy image, I am a huge fan of Napoleonic era naval battle paintings and I wanted to try and create a similar image but in space, a battle between 3 ships, 2 of them trying to take down the rather more advanced and skilled Dreadnought in the middle. In the distance a line of ships launches a volley of missiles towards the incoming ship knowing their 2 ships have fallen, one gutted by a powerful laser, the other suffering from a major reactor explosion.
Further in the distance a huge battle is being fought in a large dust cloud, it illuminates the inside of the cloud and creates a slit of light across the clouds opening.

The image also points out some gameplay features, one being how you can level up a ship, the Dread in the middle is very advanced, its seen a lot of combat so its crew knows the ship and its systems well and so can overclock all systems basically, hence the ultra laser. Also you may notice its hull has a distinct hexagonal pattern, this is another feature, if you upgrade the hull it will show. Also gun turrets will vary depending on the type.

This illustration was to give an idea of the Human ships defenses, they have shields but they are magnetic field shields similar to real world attempts at creating energy shields. The shields are invisible both when active and when hit only the fact that the explosions look different and obviously detonate before hitting the ship can you tell they have shields. The other defense is the flak system, inspired by Battlestar Gallactica the Humans in this game are very slap dash they would rather hurl hundreds of inexpensive projectiles at an area to protect against missile bombardments than spend a lot of money on creating and installing a system that is accurate and more effective. Also for shits and giggles what looks better a single shot gun or a cloud of explosions?

In the space between planets a huge Fusion reactor was built to satisfy the ever growing need for energy. It creates small stars which it gets energy from, this energy is then transmitted to every world in the system. The power is immense, as new stars are created using a form of laser fusion huge dust clouds swirl and ignite. When the energy form a star is depleted is shrinks and dies in a controlled and harmless way. A convoy of ships approach the station probably to offload supplies and personnel.

This is my entry to the new Luminarium Exhibit themed Energy, always wanted to make a huge machine that makes stars hehe.

Continuing with the upload of work I have done so far working at Taitale Studios on their new MMORTS game Novus Aeterno I present to you Derelict (my balls) I did the joke here first but I know it wont stop the comments rolling in with that in them haha, also if you've never seen Zoolander you will have no idea what that means.
Anyway back on to the subject of the image, its actually a remake of a much older image I did for the game a long time ago before I was actually part of the team just doing freelance work, the old image goes by the same name and the principle is the same a giant war torn world and a wreak of a large ship in orbit.
This is one of my favorite images so far out of the pile of images I've done for the game.

Do first contact situation ever go peacefully? Of course they don't because that would be boring.
Anyway what your looking at is a first contact situation between the Humans and the first alien race to go into the game Novus Aeterno the Verunas. I have shown some of their ship designs recently and this is the first full illustration with them in so it was nice to paint something other than Human V Human.

The Verunas aren't very friendly they are the most advanced race in the game and they know it, they are big headed both physically and mentally.

Also this painting will cover a 20ft wall at out booth at PAX in April which will be rather cool to see.

Enjoy

Here is the third image I have done working with Taitale Studios on their MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. Many people have been asking questions about the game "is it like EVE" "whens it out" "how much is it". Well I cant answer much except that aside from it being set in space it has very little to do with EVE, its a very different game its the first and only true MMORTS game as it has a persistent universe that never stops.
This image is my favorite, it shows a giant construction yard in space finishing off one of the dreadnought class ships, they are huge by the way. The ship is a tall ship but this POV really helped show its scale almost looking up at it.

A promotional image done for the game Novus Aeterno by Taitale Studios who I have been working with for the past month or so on the game and with its talented team. Its a sci-fi MMORTS and will feature some pretty cool space battle.
The site is still in development but will be active in the next few weeks.

The latest illustration for the MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. Having spent the last month or 2 working on ship concepts and skins it was nice to break loose and paint another huge space battle. Since we have new models for just about everything now it made sense to paint an updated image.
The foreground ships consist of some Dreadnoughts (the tall big things) a few Battleships (Smaller vertical ships with an angled lower section) 2 Basilisk Capitol ships (the 2 giant things in the top left and bottom right corners) and a Laminar Capitol ship (the large ship just above the massive explosion firing off a lot of rounds)

That big explosion was caused by a rather well placed shot by the top left Basilisk right down the barrel of an enemy Basilisk, the resulting explosion was pretty big. The other Capitol ship in the right lower corner was quite lucky compared, a distant Manticore Capitol ship, which is a huge prototype laser cannon with engines, just grazed the ships sides, melting away layers of hull and ripping the shield.

Enjoy :ahoy:

New image from the graphic novel Telikos Protocol, visit the Facebook page to find out more: [link]

Whilst working on one of the pages this image stood out as being too awesome to keep under wraps until issue one is released, so we decided to throw it out there.
It shows two of the orbital rail gun platforms that orbit Earth used to safe guard it from asteroids, they are very big and very powerful. Enjoy :)
